“Man-made God Inspired”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

If you walk, bicycle, rollerblade the paved path along Cape Cod Canal you will be moved by the beauty of this place. As the water races by north to south, south to north depending on the tide, you will see boats of all sizes passing through the waterway. A loon was diving for fish submerging in front of us and surfacing hundreds of yards away carried by the swift moving current. On a nice warm day, brink a picnic lunch. Let the sea sweep you away as it cuts through Cape Cod and the mainland. Bring a camera, bring someone you care about.and you will be happy you did.

“cool on a hot day, great for a bike ride”
Reviewed March 25, 2012

The canal really is scenic, and well landscaped for public enjoyment. And you don't have to cross the bridge!

“Just plain fun”
Reviewed February 28, 2012

If you do not take time to sit and just look at it, you have missed a great experience. You maybe lucky enough to see a boat or two. Not too much boat traffic off season, but just a fun thing to see. On the north side there are picnic tables and parking. On the Cape side, just higher elevation pull offs, no tables. Plan to see it.
